Movie Review: Lovers of the Arctic Circle

Story: Symmetry, destiny, synchronnicity, coincidence, fate - whatever you want to call it - This beautiful film weaves, layers and encircles the story of two people, who discover each other as children and recognize their inseparable connection to one other. We follow them individuallly and together with brilliant editing through the present, future and the past while their relationship takes shape. Basically, it is a terrific non-Hollywood love story.

Starring: The locales of Spain and Finland (a different visual twist for me), and talented Spanish actors whose physical characteristics are also wonderfully different and interesting to watch. The film is in Spanish (classic Castillion). For anyone who took HS spanish it still actually sounds familiar and most of the time I forgot about the subtitles.
